    New keyboard overrides normal function keys
    Hey guys. I actually like this new keyboard from Apple. I also like the iTunes controls on the F buttons. The thing is that with my work in Illustrator, I need those hotkeys to show windows or do certain actions. I've tried holding a combination of control, option, and command keys but to no avail.

    I have absolutely no problem that I have to press down another key to use my hotkeys, but is there a way I can use it without modifying them in my Adobe software?

    I think it was too windows esque, hence the windows key on windows keyboards.
